Ascendance Rep relies on the support and generosity of its members, corporate sponsors and funders to continue bringing art of the very highest quality to its audiences.


Ascendance works to raise funds from a variety of sources, and in addition to an application lodged with Arts Council England, we are now seeking funds for specific areas of work. These are:

Photoshoots and filming: we like to keep a record of our work as it develops and we use promotional DVDs to advertise the company to new promoters.

Printed promotional Material, including full-colour flyers, posters and programmes which can bring the name and logo of a sponsor to thousands of people in venues throughout the UK.

Education programme involving 300 participants, which will introduce many people of all ages to dance for the first time.

Performances in 10 heritage sites, where sponsors can invite guests to attend a reception in their name.

Travel and Accommodation – always an issue for touring companies –  we are seeking support from businesses able to offer competitive rates.
